Douglas Hofstadter is well known for his classic - Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. This book was published in 1979, and I purchased it in 2007, perhaps. I was deeply engaged with this book, for an year, and was so inspired by it that I thought to inspire others by gifting them this book. Little did I know that one of the two-three folks, to whom I gifted this book, complained indirectly about weight of this book, hard to carry. I am yet not sure of fate of those books, I am very unsure whether people really read books -- those who read are of course scarce in number.
Anyways, Douglas is a big person, in the area of Cognitive Science. And I liked his article:
I will summarise his points (better to read his article):
- Tools like Google Translate are half-baked. Lack the organelles to "Understand" translation.
- Beware of the term "Deep" prefixed to Machine Learning domain. Is it worthy to call it Deep?
